The Jerome Mine Museum is owned and operated by the Jerome Historical Society which was created when the mines closed in the early 1950’s.
With displays depicting the timeline of Jerome’s past to its present, items such as old miners equipment to remains of gambling in saloons can be seen within the Museum. Included are displays on the Chinese in Jerome and the melting pot of other ethnicities that include the Italians, Slavs, Mexicans, Irish, Russians and more. The museum is evolving from pure mining to demonstrating the people who made Jerome what it is.
The Mine Museum Gift Shop offers a wide variety of gifts and souvenirs. The Gift Shop is a vital part of the Jerome Historical Society’s fundraising efforts. Every purchase made goes directly to the Historical Society, enabling the Society to continue preserving the historic buildings in Jerome.
